As for your oil tank, use http://babelfish.altavista.com to translate those pesky german pages on www.ebay.de

search for xt Öltank or xt Öeltank: None on there but there is a XT tenere going for £200 good for spares I am seriously tempted!

100% off topic, but I am probably near you (Rochester), having moved here recently I know nowhere to ride off road: Do you have any local knowledge?

Cheers G

XT600 oil tank

Hi, I'm new to this forum game so I hope I get this right. If you get no joy with a replacement oil tank we can have a good go at repairing your old one. My eldest son has a small welding and fabrication business in Somerset, and we can have a look at it for you if you want, you cover the postage and let us assess what needs doing, if we can't repair it we'll send it back - no charge just the postage. Ed.
